No offense intended Chris,

No offense intended Chris, but do have any affiliation with The Onion? Or are you just a big fan?

It's just one of the many fine news sources I consult daily...

Pretty funny

Though, funny as it may be, some countries do have these types of models.

For example, in Mexico, you can get a previous gen Jetta along side a current one.

I didn't realize it was only $650

Can't criticize that price. But heres the research I was curious about: List price in 1993 is $28000 (http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/oneyear/112_9503_1993_fo...). Adjusted for CPI about $44,000. Adjusting for shadowstats, the price should be between $75000-$110000.
However a 2013 Taurus lists at $38000. so $650 really good deal.

That is a real plus. Sure beats getting out there with the crank, especially on chilly winter mornings.

He's the man.

Lol, one of the greatest innovations

One of the greatest innovations was adding the key switch activated Solenoid to the starter so that the foot pedal starter could be removed. In 2007 I saw an innovation introduced by Cummins Diesel Motor company that is way too much to explain here and now. Absolutely way behind it's time. Dodge did it first in the 50's.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.
